Win Tickets to This Friday’s Bounce Boat Featuring Mike Hawkins + Designer Drugs!


Have you ever wanted to #turnup on the Hudson River? Well, thanks to the Bounce Boat, “the world’s premiere dance music cruise,” YOUR DREAMS CAN COME TRUE! This summer, a pretty killer line-up of DJs are taking to the water and getting New Yorkers to grind on strangers while simultaneously taking in a sick view of the city’s skyline. After Just Blaze’s heart-stopping set last week, Danish producer DJ Mike Hawkins (who appeared on the inaugural episode of Bounce Boat Radio, embedded after the jump) will be joined by Designer Drugs for Friday night’s cruise.

Tickets are still available for both GA and VIP, but we can offer one lucky winner a free pair of GA tickets to catch this weekend’s party. Find out how after the jump!

1. Follow us @soundofthecity on Twitter. If you don’t have a Twitter account then how the hell are you supposed to livetweet all the ways you are turnt on the boat?!

2. Check your ID because this is STRICTLY for the 21+ crowd.

3. Tweet “TURN DOWN FOR BOUNCE BOAT” at @soundofthecity

4. Get your glowsticks ready to go!!

5. Stand by for us to choose one winner at random. We’ll send you a DM (hence the importance of Step 1). CONTEST ENDS AT 11:00 A.M. on FRIDAY, 7/18. Stand by and be ready to send us your e-mail address when we DM you!
